Sitting pretty in a narrow passageway pressing through Vermont’s famed Green Mountains is Smuggler’s Notch State Park and Campground. Lined with thousand-foot cliffs, winding alpine roads, and challenging footpaths, the park delivers the frickin’ best of rural New England. The campsites are spread out and secluded with all the basics covered and no shortage of historical structures nearby. And hey, don’t forget to stop by the Ben & Jerry’s Factory, just a hop, skip, and jump down the way for s’more fun!

Great little campground! Not a lot of sites so it stays quiet at night, bathrooms are super clean. The showers are nice and hot, $1 in quarters only for 4 minutes. A short walk to the trailhead at Bingham Falls, and only a few minutes drive to three different trailheads for Mt Mansfield. Would recommend!

quiet time is from 10 until 7. we drove 9.5 hours and arrived to join our group at 6 am and they would not let us drive to the campsite. we we told to be quiet for just talking at the fire at 10:15. the camp ground is really nice but the staff might have a bit of a Napoleon complex.

Small, quiet campground. You can walk to the AMAZING Bingham Falls from camp. Cliff jumping and frigid water. Be warned!

Have stayed there twice, it is pretty, clean and well kept. Was using a tent both times but RV's were about as well as lean two's. A lot to visit in the area and if lake/water activities desired your pass gives you free entry to another state property which does, about a 15 minute drive.
Enjoyable camping spot. Kept up nicely. Lots of trees for shade.

Gorgeous little campground! It's very clean and well kept. Great hiking and bouldering close by. Ice and firewood available from the ranger. We stayed in site 18: very private, slightly sunken from the road, and lots of tree coverage.
